The new garden seat arrived lunch time, at least the carrier dropped it round the back of the house as we didn't want to try to hangle this heavy load. We had to unpack it and work through the Chinese revenge assembly instructions, yes written by English people , made in England with instructions that make Chinese seem simple. They had the pieces wronglt numbered against the illustrations, the orientation of screws in pictures was incorrect, it goes on and on. It was easiest just to work our how it fitted and then plunge in. It is very heavy and looks well fitting nicely in the surface I made and thankfully correct measurements. One now adjustable foot makes compensations for any degree of error between construction and foundation, after all it was and still is level overall. We need a new bird table we'll place one a bit further away, actually with the ammount of bird poo on the cars its a wonder we bother feeding them. We christened the chairs with a glass of wine from Priorat our friend Albert's region in the hills above Barcelona. I was particularly taken by the bunch of peonies we got at M&S, they are now open, really worth that little extra. We have lots of Peonies growing in the garden, with the recent rain the garden is looking lush and well including the excellent quality turf from Frodsham.
I've finished the DVD of trolleybuses in their later years around the UK, I've just got to make the cover, there will be another volume finished this weekend. If the weather is fine we'll also have a walk and sit in the new garden seat, I didn't bother doing the Lower Peover M6 film today as I was hoping to cover M6 Jnt 19 but weather was very variable, hoping Mopnday will b better, then start to pick up on more normal filming as long as we don't break the social distancing rules there is no reason we shouldn't resume or to have stopped in the first place other than to try and show some support for an otherwise hopeless government policy on the Corona Pandemic. I'm writing tonight to the contacts in Brazil to confirm that it will be impossible to pursue the planned July visit.We'll probably have extra UK trips to catch up in the summer if that proves possible for hotels etc.. I'm going to do some screen shots for the DVD cover and will put them on as a slide show tomorrow. Meanwhile some museum trolleybus shots all but last one which is Teesside in action John Bishop photographer.
